A Neotibicen lyricen engelhardti found in central New Jersey on July 23, 2022, and released on the morning of July 24th.

This cicada is a male. It was less than 12 hours after molting and its colors were not fully resolved (it will get darker). Note the green wings, black collar, and brown “lightbulb-shaped” marking on its head (pronotum).

    Looks identical to one that landed on me and stayed with me the entire time I watered my yard. Beautiful
